PCSO hangs his boots up for last time after 14 years
Main article content
This week we say a fond farewell to one of our most loyal members of staff, PCSO Adrian Harper.
Adrian joined us 14 years ago from the Royal Marines and since then has worked on the Safer Neighbourhood team (SNT) at Mackworth and Morley in Derby. He is now retiring to spend some well-deserved quality time with his family.
Our SNTs really are based in the heart of our communities across Derbyshire and are there to address the very local and specific issues that they experience. Adrian’s supervisor, PCSO Supervisor Matt Thurman, explained: “ Adrian has spent his whole time with Derbyshire police based in Mackworth and Morley, is a well-known face and I know he will be missed.
“From his previous service in the Royal Marines Adrian played the bugle and this is something he has been asked to do many times at Remembrance Parades across his patch, something I know he has felt an honour to do.”
Speaking of his retirement Adrian said:” I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as a PCSO, building relationships with and serving the communities of Mackworth and Morley. I particularly enjoyed my work with the Community Speed Watch.
“I now have some time to peruse my interests, however I will still parade at The National Memorial Arboretum, playing Last Post & Reveille for military parades and memorials.”
It only leaves us to say ‘best wishes and enjoy your well-earned retirement PCSO Harper”.
